    “You frighten me,” the Gypsy said. “Never have I seen my crystal ball so filled with darkness.” For Flavia de Luce, the old gypsy's words open up old wounds and new possibilities. Is she a faker, or is there some truth to her powers? And when the village is rocked by another ghastly murder, how will a growing fascination with gypsy lore help Flavia to solve it?

    Story

    I've read the Flavia De Luce books, but the narration from Sophie Aldred makes this one come alive. Her voices for the characters are distinctive and you can almost see the people speaking as she reads the story. By far the best narrator I've heard on Audible.

    Story

    I've loved this book since I had to read it in year 8 at school. The story is intriguing and the main character, David, grows and develops as the story unfolds. It was well read and flowed smoothly. I'd definitely recommend this one!

    Finding so young and pretty a girl as Amanda wandering unattended, Sir Gareth Ludlow knows it is his duty as a man of honour to restore her to her family.

    But it is to prove no easy task for the Corinthian. His captive in sprig muslin has more than her rapturous good looks and bandboxes to aid her - she is also possessed of a runaway imagination...

    A says: "Teen years favorite comes to Audible --at last!"
    "I Loved It!"
    Overall

    This is one of my favourite Georgette Heyer novels, and was so well read. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I look forward to listening to more books read by this narrator, she did a great job.
